Sabine Blaizin

Sabine Blaizin is a producer, DJ and event planner, and founder of Oysasound Productions. Her company features artists, music, and events highlighting the intersections of the cultures of the African Diaspora through the syncretism of traditional rhythms & electronic music. Over the years, DJ Sabine’s mainstay and cultivation has been the monthly event, Brooklyn Mecca, which has been coined the home of “grassroots dance culture.” She is the resident DJ for Subrosa’s new signature monthly party, Cumbancha, where she spins Afrotech, Afrobeat, and other diasporic tunes. She spins all over the world — from NYC to Atlanta, and Omaha to LA, and to Canada, Senegal, Haiti, Cuba, and Mexico, and also sits on several panel discussions, DJs, and curates showcases for the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI). There, she was honored as an emerging artist at the 27th Annual Women of Power Conference 2014: The Art of Being a Woman. She made the Most Respected House DJ’s List of 2014 by MediaServiceNyc and produced her first installment of her project ‘Lakay Se Lakay: Home Is Home’ in conjunction with Haiti Cultural Exchange’s 1st NYC Haitian Arts & Culture festival Selebrayson! She then produced her second installment as a full-day conference in partnership with The New School in 2015, and the third as a visual/sonic installment for HCX’s 2016 Lakou NOU Fellowship. Sabine was also the featured DJ for the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art’s 50th Anniversary.
